Castle Island
Castle Island
When King Malcolm Canmore came here to hunt in the 11th century, there was a wooden tower on the island. Later it was replaced by a stone one, linked to the shore by a causeway. When this fell into ruin, the island was used for grazing, and there is a legend about a local woman who, despite being blind, used to lead her goats to the island by the causeway.
